Enter the number of stories and the average height of one floor into the calculator to determine the height in feet. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

Stories To Feet Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the height in feet from the number of stories in a building.

H = S * F

Variables:

  • H is the height in feet S is the number of stories F is the average height of one floor in feet (typically around 10 feet)

To calculate the height in feet, multiply the number of stories by the average height of one floor.

How to Calculate Stories To Feet?

The following steps outline how to calculate the height in feet (H) using the Stories To Feet formula.


  1. First, determine the number of stories (S).
  2. Next, determine the average height of one floor (F) in feet.
  3. Next, gather the formula from above: H = S * F.
  4. Finally, calculate the height in feet (H) by substituting the values of S and F into the formula.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem:

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

Number of stories (S) = 5

Average height of one floor (F) = 10 feet
